Happiness Challenge – Conscientious

I am writing this a day late as I was not happy enough to write this yesterday.  Part of the day was absolutely phenomenal as I got to spend it meeting some amazing new folks who are supporting Cheetah Learning’s Accelerated Exam Prep for the Project Management Institute’s Project Management Professional (PMP) exam.  I drove up to Seattle to meet them at the class they were teaching (and taking).

While the class was great and meeting them all was fantastic (the bane of a virtual company is I rarely meet the people who work with and for me), the drive there and back was through heavy traffic and heavy rain.  A drive that in good weather and low traffic takes a little over two hours, took me four hours each way.  I got in touch with a persona that is a part of me I call BS Betty.   She at times direct opposition to overly responsible Rebecca.  Betty calls BS on the things super conscientious  Rebecca feels are a good idea.  And this is where sometimes being conscientious does not lead to improving happiness – in the short term.
